Mrs. Rosslyn Onuachu, mother of a slained Mbaise youth late Chika Onuachu who was allegedly kidnapped and murdered by alleged youths of Umuasonye in Umuariam Obowo on Dec. 25 has called on Imo Police Command to arrest suspected killers of her son and bring them to book.
Recall that late Chika Onuachu, an indigene of Okpuala Itu Aguneze Mbaise was allegedly kidnapped and murdered in Obowo by alleged youths of Umuasonye Obowo, while his lifeless body was found in a bush.
Speaking to journalists on the issue, Onuachu told journalists that a Pastor of “End Time Church” in Aguneze Pst. Paul Anyanwu who is now at large allegedly invited his twin brother and other youths from Umuasonye to attack her son.
She said trouble started when the Pastor and her son had misunderstanding over access road leading to the Pastor’s church and the pastor threatened to kill him.
“The pastor use our land to create access road to his church without consulting us and when my son approached him on the issue, he carried out serious threat against my son.
“On Dec. 25, 2020 the pastor who is from Umuasonye Umuariam but reside in Aguneze, invited his twin brother and other youths of Umuasonye, who came and whisked my son away and allegedly murdered him in Obowo.
She said the pastor fled the area on getting the news of the death of her son, while the matter was reported to a nearby police station in Mbaise.
She cried to the Commissioner of Police in Imo and other human right group to help fight the battle and bring killers of his son to book.
She said “I cry for help, I seek justice, he is my only son and bread winner of my family. He was the one taking care of my poor health condition”, she spoke in tears.
Meanwhile, police has been advised not to sweep the matter under the carpet, but to ensure that the alleged Umuasonye youth who carried out the dastardly act should be brought to book.
An indigene of Obowo who spoke on condition of anonymity, told journalists that the youths have been terrorizing the entire LGA with a guise of being a youth body.
He said the youths are responsible for the recent vandalization of a transformer in Umuariam and the issue went viral on social media.
It will be recalled that the same Umuasonye Youths on December 2020 staged a malicious protest against a prominent indigene of Obowo Prince Josua Onyemauche over unfounded allegations.
However, Imo police dismissed the allegations against Prince Josua Onyemauche discribing it as frivolous.
The youths are currently standing a defamatory charge at Ihitte-Uboma High Court on Suit No: HME 61 2020 between Prince Josua Onyemauche plaintiff and Chijioke Onumaeme, Onwuka Uchenna, Anosike Ikechukwu and Anyawu Okechukwu.
Others in the suit are Chijioke Eche, Anorom Hycient, Osuagwu Emeka, Odinaka Mmakwu and Ekezie Ben.
Meanwhile, confirming the report the Imo police PPRO, Orlando Ikoku said that the matter has officially been reported adding that police has commenced investigations.
